It's a can of Cooper's OS= "Original Series" LME (Liquid Malt Extract) pre hopped with bittering only. DME= Dried Malt Extract,I use plain DME's in my boils for hop additions. And it'll say on the bag if it's plain,not to mention wheat or regular barley DME. Dried malt extract doesn't darken as easily as LME does. And never boil pre-hopped LME's,or the hop profile boils away.
I went down to 2 less trulemon packets to get more hop flavor,but the full amount listed in the priming solution mixed with the hop flavors. It tasted like a lemon herb tea in the beer. You can def add more to taste for more lemon flavor. I was trying to maintain some balance with the other flavors.
But it could well be that it works better in bottles. Never kegged before,but I can't imagine why there'd be a difference.

I'm about to bottle a sweet tea lemonade shandy, and my plan was to use sweet tea vodka and lemon extract. Do you have experience with lemon extract or would you suggest I get some True Lemon packets?

As I remember reading on the German beer institue site,the originator was low on some light colored beer served in the summer at his inn. But he did have a lot of this lemon soda popular over there,so he mixed the two. I thought the Cooper's Original Series lager came pretty close. Just have to try adding zest with the trulemon next time.
I also have a light hybrid lager partial mash recipe I've been perfecting that might just work well for this.

The wedding beer, Sweet Tea Lemonade Shandy, was a huge hit. At bottling (5.5gal batch) I added a full 6.5gr packet of unsweetened Kool Aid Lemonade mix, 2 cups of sweet tea vodka, and two capfuls of lemon extract. I will definitely make this beer again.

I'm going to have to try my light hybrid lager recipe with Truelemon & a couple ounces of lemon zest next time. Maybe with sorachie ace & saaz.
